Admin Rights in GPO to Run a .BAT File
Posted on 2013-01-16
I am trying to run a simple .BAT file that will get rid of previous versions of Java and I want to use Group Policy to distribute it. I have it setup as a startup script in the Group Policy Manager and it works great ... as long as the user logs in with the local or domain Admin account :S
I thought using the startup script in GPM automatically used system admin rights. Did I miss a step there?
I've tried to find a few simple solutions across the web, but they all seem to involve putting the admin account info in the BAT file ... something I do NOT want to do.
BTW, I am far from a programmer (my BAT file simply has one command in it). So bear with me. Also running a Windows 2008 R2 environment and the client machines are Win7.
Any help would be appreciated.
